Welcome to the Neighbourhood.
We are a community focused company, run by 2 women with love and the aim to make sure every body is welcome. Having been through a few different iterations, including community classes and a cafe, we are now focussing purely on running magical retreats both in the UK & abroad.
Co-founded by Kate & Jeni, both yoga teachers and skilled multi taskers, to give you an experience where you can not only practice yoga but meet, interact, nourish yourself and find community.
We not only run our own retreats, but work with others to organise, cater and teach on theirs. If that;s something you're interested in head over to our services page for more info.
Kate has been teaching since 2018 and gets a lot of joy from being able to bring the practice of yoga in to peoples lives. When she started to work along side Jeni in early 2021 to run the then Y-oga store, she realised that aside from teaching, this was what she wanted to do.
Amongst many things, the last few years have shown her whats truly important; community being a huge part of that. "We need contact, closeness, and kindness. We are social creatures. Through Neighbourhood, we want to create a space where people can be together and be part of something that feels homely and welcoming, no matter their differences. "
Kate is trained in Vinyasa, Yin, Pre and Post Natal yoga. She is also currently working towards her additional 500 hours to become a level 2 teacher. Check out her instagram @yoga_kit
Jeni has been teaching since the beginning of 2020 and says the last few years have been totally life changing for her. Taking over as manager at Y-oga store (as was) and building a community in the midst of a pandemic was a huge mile stone in her life.
Along side this, completing her Bhakti training which gave her teaching another dimension - filling it with compassion and love. This, she says, is what yoga is really about. Connection, to yourself and others. "Neighbourhood is community. It is being together. Forming friendships and holding each other up."
Jeni is trained in Vinyasa, Rocket, Mandala and Bhakti. Head over to her instagram @jeniengland
